MRI Results

I had a great meeting with my radiation oncologist yesterday. He came in with a big smile and said that he had some good news. The MRI showed no cancer and the tumour growth has shrunk and seems to be harmless. At this point he was comfortable to say that I had a 'complete response' and that they cannot find any more cancer. I hugged him twice and went home smiling.
I will be off to Germany today.

Merry Christmas everyone!
